Montreal-based singer-songwriter Geneviève Racette has captivated listeners and garnered impressive industry support for her folk-pop tracks ever since her first EP in 2014. Since, through her compelling, vulnerable lyricism and ethereal vocals, Geneviève has emerged as a rising star in both French and English-speaking Canadian music scenes.
Racette’s musically filled upbringing has forged her into the creative artist she is today. Continuously receiving praise for her music, she has already been nominated and received several prestigious prizes including, Emerging Artist of the Year at the Canadian Folk Music Award (2020). Geneviève is also recognized by established artists in the industry for her talents. She grabbed the attention of Singer-songwriter Dallas Green on Instagram with her cover of Hello, I’m in Delaware. He then invited her to appear with him on stage at the Osheaga festival in 2019, a most memorable moment for her.
Geneviève’s growing popularity is also noticeable on streaming platforms and web radios with her first full-length French album “Les aurores boréales” (2016). With all this excitement Geneviève still finds time to hone her craft. She traveled twice to the Banff Center for Arts and Creativity, in 2017 she was selected among 150 singer-songwriters to work with some of the best songwriters from Nashville, and in 2019, Geneviève got to work on the pre-production of her most recent album, No Water, No Flowers. This new recording has propelled Geneviève to new heights with nearly 2 million streams on Spotify, all the while, receiving rave reviews from media, blogs, and music publications.
Geneviève has an undeniable love of the stage, in 2019 she conquered over a hundred Canadian concert venues. In the last two years, Racette has broadened her performing territory, from mostly Québec venues to other Canadian provinces Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and the Maritimes, as the headliner in each of the tours. She also finds time to exchange and meet with artists at a variety of music showcases such as Folk Alliance International New Orleans (2020), Folk Music Ontario (2019), and the Canadian Music Week (2019).Through fine-tuning her artistic vision and developing a profound network of professionals, Geneviève hopes to explore new concert venues, reach beyond the Canadian market and export her music across North America and beyond.
